  • Evasi0n 1.4 Released With Support for iOS 6.1.2


    The evad3rs have released evasi0n version 1.4 Tuesday evening with support for iOS 6.1.2. The update is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux and can be downloaded from the evasi0n Web site.

    iOS 6.1.2 was released Tuesday afternoon to fix an Exchange calendar bug that quickly drains the iOS device's battery life. Fortunately, the update did not patch the popular evasion iOS 6 untethered jailbreak.

    If youíre planning on updating to iOS 6.1.2 to fix any issues you might be having with Exchange, you can download the firmware through iTunes and perform a DFU mode restore to the iOS 6.1.2 firmware. You will not be able to update to iOS 6.1.2 OTA (over the air) if you are jailbroken, and we donít recommend OTA if you arenít jailbroken yet. You should follow this guide to get your device prepared for the jailbreak on iOS 6.1.2.

    There shouldnít be any issues with jailbreak tweaks not being compatible with iOS 6.1.2, since itís pretty much the same firmware as iOS 6.1 with a few minor bug fixes. With that being said, update to your heartís content!

      You should always use the latest iTunes. I'm on 6.1.1, I may not do this yet. I've just gotten all my packages in! I'm having Alvin Toffler's Future Shock with all these rapid iOS updowndates.

      If so could you please explain how you did it as I miss the SBSettings
      Thanks
      There is something you need to know about SBSsettings toggles: in some cases, the 3G toggle is backward, so that when you have it "on" it is really "Off"

      Do you do the basic backup or the full download .deb backup?

      Also, is 6.1.2 needed if one does not even touch Exchange?
      Recovery mode is not DFU mode, so the answer would be no.

      Only if you use Exchange Calendars. Not even just Exchange mail. This is NOT a "general" battery fix at all.

      And yet when you enter DFU mode - iTunes calls it Recovery Mode - so the distinction is kind of moot. Right?

      wow that was really weird...

      I just restored to 6.1.2 (dont ask me why ), and the GUI in the appstore looked like iOS 5, not the organized iOS 6 that allows searching horizontally, but instead it was vertically

      Then when I tried searching, it would not even let me scroll down, I could see the scroll bar when I swiped down, but nothing happened.

      Then I just restored again to 6.1.2, and now the AppStore GUI looks like iOS 6+ and I can scroll horizontally.

      The only thing different between this restore and the last one was that in this restore, I did not sign in to my AppStore account during the initial setup

      FYI This is for my iphone 5

      Never seen anything like it

      Make sure u hard reset/reboot regularly...have u seen the amount of junk files created with each respring? It's atrocious. I think it's var/tmp or something. (not on my 5 ATM)
